Ron Clifford2,828,737On the show +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn   will share how she got started in astrophotography, explain her fabulous setup and show a few of her favourite deep sky images, (you don't want to miss this!). Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls". My Website is  www.weatherandsky.com Your loyal hosts +Jan Kabili  and +Ron Clifford  will be joined by producer +Dave Bell  and panelists, the  extraordinary +Erika Thornes  and +Dan Hughes   #photoshop #astrophotography #deepspace  The Photoshop Show 50 - with Guest Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn2014-01-29 03:00:0097

They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-18 10:19:48162001

Daniel Mihai Popescu67,133Music, Twitter and SFMy most recent circle! I hope you don't mind if I mention you in comments, since my notification system doesn't seem to work.It is the first round, I'm not sure this will be the definitive version.Best wishes :)Lately I developed a fixation for Tsu, and if you don't have a profile there, this is my invitation:http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuIf you already have one, let's be friends and help each other grow!It'll be awesome to meet you there too! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  A "+1" will be greatly appreciated :) 2014-12-16 20:37:1549811757146
Daniel Mihai Popescu66,628This circle is called Amalgam :)It is a mixture of new and very old friends. Of course, the Invincible is always present :)I've been a little bit disappointed for losing some guys I've even grown so fond of lately, so fond that they were in my notification circle, something very rare. They left me without a word, but that's not a problem, because everything goes on :)You are not required to do a single thing, I'll mention you in comments, I hope you don't mind :) I do this because the notifications don't work with my account, it's still an enigma, so I can't say that if you receive a notification from me, you're a member in this circle. It's sure you're a member if I mention you. That's one thing.Another thing is that you, the members, don't have to share the circle. I can't pretend from you, what I don't do with your circles. It's somehow a kind of reciprocally membership, which is a signal for others :) You, my circle members, are some of the most precious people on G+, and you have to be sure of that.So, for my followers, especially the new ones, it'll be good for you to add this circle because you'll gain a lot on your stream! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-11 22:33:4849412866154
Daniel Mihai Popescu65,671This circle is called Plusers which with a few exceptions is quite vintage :)Don't do anything with it if you don't like, it comes without strings for members, which are the cream of the cream of G+, as you see starting with the cover :)A "plus one" will be very appreciated, and to consider my invitation to Tsu, if you don't have already an account there:http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuThank you for being my friends! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance   #tsu   #tsunation   #tsuinvitation   2014-11-28 19:26:42495000
Daniel Mihai Popescu65,332This is a special circle! As you see, it hasn't even 400 members, but the number can increase, I suppose :)I'm very happy at the moment, that's all.You may do as you wish, I'm not sure that my notification system works, so I'm gonna thank you personally in comments. Again, I hope you don't mind if I mention you.Wishing you a nice week ahead and if you aren't already on Tsu, the new trendy network, break the ice and fill the form after you click on the link :)http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuI know that a lot of you are there already and that's just fine. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-11-24 23:11:163068356102

Daniel Mihai Popescu61,717One of my Engagers circles :)Dedicated to you, it comes without string attached. I just hope you don't mind mentioning you all in the comments, since my notifications don't work. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  A "+1" will be more than enough for members :)I am sad when I see someone removing accounts he follows after a couple of weeks of "inactivity", no matter the communication and the good collaboration they have with the removed accounts. People letting the software to work for them, people with less defined scopes here, or quite very good defined.I have just used +Circloscope to have a look on the activity :)I remember faces, I remember names, I know guys from other networks, I can't bring myself to remove them when they haven't posted here for more than one week, one month, or even three.Where are we going? Isn't there enough room for everybody, or are some of you just bored of my rants?I hope you enjoy this circle, and tell me if I forgot someone. Thank you!2014-10-21 21:34:3248116177193
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

It was a time when a "+1" made me happy, and I saw it didn't worked out :) Don't do anything! I am honored for you being my friends, so this is my homage to you, but in my unmeasurable vanity I wanted you to know :) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  As usual, this circle will do a tremendous good to your stream, so it is recommended to be added, especially by non-members and newcomers. If I'm not the best possible host, please forgive me.2014-07-16 11:00:0848420572173

Nancy Levan3,336The Circle of AwesomenessThis is the final circle of everyone who participated in +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt - 2014 Spring Fling. These are all amazing, talented, fun, engaging and lovely people who made this round of the hunt one to remember.Thank you to everyone in the circle for participating! I hope we see you at the next round in a couple of weeks. Remember the next sign up is July 12th at Noon (Mountain Time). You need to be on +Chrysta Rae's page at that time and watch for the post to comment "I'm in!" on it. Spots go fast so be on time to get in. See you there!2014-06-26 18:56:0338943754
Daniel Mihai Popescu52,356They are the Survivors, a circle I'm going to share more often, because it has its own dynamic :)I hope you receive the notification this time, and if you receive it, it means you are in the circle, so you are not required to do anything. Just a "+1" from your part will be greatly appreciated, there's no need to spend your precious time with sharing or commenting.For non-members, I think you have to figure out on your own what to do, because usually I don't promise anything, I'm don't barter my circles membership. If you add the circle, it's definitively your gain, so I strongly suggest you to do so. The circle's title is not in vain, it really suggests the circle's dynamic. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  This, like all of my other circles, is an homage to you.Thank you very much for being my friends!2014-06-26 14:46:19412442853

Daniel Mihai Popescu51,115This is Wonders, a circle you all know!A "+1" will be greatly appreciated, but of course it is not a requirement. You are not required to do anything :)I hope you receive the notification, and if it is so, it means you are in the circle. The circle is old, but I still do some experiments. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  When I created the circle, I was curious if you have any proposition of friends to be included :) I still wonder if you have such friends. I shall create another circle, or a combination, I'll see :)Anyway, if you are original enough, and comment on what you like, you don't need to be shared in a circle to become famous, don't you think?If you add this circle (this is the reason of me sharing it), you will have a pleasant surprise on your stream!

Daniel Mihai Popescu49,376This is called Circle Zero and the great majority of you already know it :)There are a few "follow backs" in it, along my precious Invincible, and some other few people I respect! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle #maximumperformance I share from Firefox this time, and if you don't receive the notification yet again, it means I'm "punished" by Google Plus :)Of course I'm joking, it means nothing, actually. Nobody is compelled to do anything, even if you receive the notification, meaning you are in the circle and you don't have to check it (this operation being made so difficult lately, by our dear G+ programmers, but I understand them: "simpler is better", so I agree). Besides, as +Adriana Popovici so accurately noticed, G+ oriented itself through communication with people not being members of your circles than outlying the members. You see now the "add" or "follow" button when checking out an account is blatantly RED, since your friends have a white one, with the "circle symbol". Nice!Oh, when you notice you're members, a simply "+1" will move me, if not, it's all the same. I keep only valuable people in my circles, so they don't have anything to change to upset me, just maybe to leave me out completely. Even that, won't be the end of the world, you know?Some of the members aren't what you call "engagers", some are not even as active as you may expect, this doesn't make them less valuable, so you can take my word, because I vouch for them!For non members: It is recommended that you add the circle, it'll give you a colorful and meaningful stream :) It's the least I can do, and if I'll make more, you'll notice in time :).Sharing the circle is not going to melt my cold heart, so please, do what you feel, and it is time to learn how to handle elegantly this delicate matter on Google Plus. When sharing the circle, please don't promise your followers things in my name, like "you will be followed back" or stuff like that, because I'm not responsible for the circle members' behavior :)Good luck! Please!2014-05-27 15:09:34480492256
Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle.

I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all).

For the computer geeks gods
Please, please, please offer some advice for a photography computer  (under 2k)
I'm really going crazy picking between a used iMac
(iMac 27″ 3.4GHz i7 QC 16GB/1TB Fusion $1,899)
and building my own PC computer (build specs located here reconfigured http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/dvgzx2/saved/#savedbuild_1825951)

I know G+ has some amazing computer people and some that are both great with computers and into photography!!!
any thoughts would be appreciated

Percussion Tubes
Quite possibly one of my favorite night images I've taken to date.
Most definitely my favourite taken with the 6d 

The urban glow from across Lake Erie, the subtle colours and reflection in the water, and the almost minimalist transition from the water below to the heavens above, the percussion tubes (not really) and the milky way converge at the same end point.  Everything seemed to work for this image... including the high ISO performance of the camera.

At least I shot in RAW this time......

The learning curve of a new setup and totally different brand can be hard enough when it's light out....  Doing it in the dark adds to the difficulties.  I'm rather pleased with my efforts to learn the camera so far.  I'm far from what I'd call a master of the Canon, but I can operate it in the dark pretty well now. ....  and as the title says....

Specs are as follows 
Weapon - Canon 6d
Glass - Samyang 14mm f/2.8

Give some well deserved love to  +Emma Mitchell.  She's been working very hard perfecting her night shooting skills and I for one think that she's hit a home run with her latest work featuring the latest round of geomagnetic activity!

Great job Emma 

The set of the best from Tues night/Wed morning.

If you have a camera and it's dark out, you may want to head outside.
There is currently a G2 geomagnetic storm with a warning for a G3.

EDIT  Make that a G4 Warning

This means that if you're north of 40 degrees there is a chance you'll see an Aurora!!!!

Get shooting for us in the daylight right now!

Here is a quick collage from this weeks visit and presentation at Bridgewater University in Massachusetts.  It was a very diverse group that consisted of the general public, students, professors from disciplines varying from the Sciences, to the Arts and even the Dean of Math and Science sat in on the presentation.  

Unfortunately we were clouded over so using the observatory didn't work out as was planned, but on the positive side, it looks like a return visit may be in the works.

The Meteorites on display are amazing! 
The building design is beautiful!
I was treated first rate!
and I think I had as much fun as the group I spoke to.

Back home from +Bridgewater State University after speaking to a group about my Landscape Astrophotography.

The facilities are first rate and it felt more like a vacation, than a speaking engagement about my photography (that is on display in the University).

Thanks BSU for being so gracious!

I've been playing around with some images from this summer on the new computer (which is awesome!!!) and I came across this interesting shot.  The milky way isn't really prominent, but the low lying fog rolling in gives it an interesting feeling.

May 20, 2012  Timmins number 9 forest fire

I captured this image back in 2012 in a dark sky location, the lack of stars is due to the glow from a raging forest fire that consumed over 39,500 hectares (over 150 square miles) of northern forest in Ontario.

150 days before the Ministry of Natural Resources could bring the blaze under control. It was finally declared extinguished on Halloween.

No lives were lost in the Timmins 9 fire

It required a total of 8,097 person days to suppress

Six Bird Dog aircraft, 12 (Bombardier) CL-415 water bombers, and three (de Havilland) Twin Otters provided air attack on the fire. More than 830,000 litres of water and more than 4 million litres of foam were dropped on the fire

Sometimes getting there is the adventure.

Quite often you will see a "road shoot" from me, there is good reason for that!
Most times I'll leave the house with only a vague idea of what I'm going to capture that evening.  Those road shots are the result of aimlessly driving around and seeing something that I like in the way a road turns, or even how the sky opens up around it.

This image is exactly that.  A totally unplanned "spur of the moment" shot.

I've processed it in B&W to give it a bit of a different look than what you're used to seeing from me.

This image was actually shot during the daylight.  There were light clouds in the air, but the details of the even brighter moon were able to shine through.
I've often loved this type of shot because it gives us the illusion that the moon is in the clouds when in fact it is over 238,000 miles from the clouds.  I also processed it to give the appearance of a night shot.

The image was processed in Lightroom

from the youtube post   This new type of drones can go over 100 km/h and reaches its destination within 1 minute, which increases chance of survival from 8% to 80%

I posted this very same image a few weeks back.
I was extremely unhappy with the processing.

The image below is take two.  I think that the processing is much better.  As we all know, with time we all improve our techniques and I for one hope that journey never ends.

This image was taken with a Canon 6d and a Samyang 14mm f/2.8
The exposure was 40s and the ISO setting was 6400
And it is a single exposure.

Hastings Drive, Long Point, Ontario
This stretch of beach on beautiful Long Point, Ontario was the scene of mass devastation in 1985 when upwards of 25 cottages were wiped off of their foundations by a freak winter storm.   The lake was also experiencing high levels at the time which created the perfect conditions to destroy the cottages.  Since that time all that remains of the cottages and their property is artifacts like the ones you see here.  The land has been deemed to be too dangerous to allow perspective land owners to build new cottages or homes.
To this day the land is in the ownership of the Ontario Government.

Light Domes
With my drive being over 100km (each way) to work, and working over 50hr/wk for the last while, I've not had a second to even pick up my camera.
Today is a day off, and I thought I'd process an image from the summer.
This image is a stitch of 4 separate photographs taken in succession creating a 180 degree image of the night sky looking north to south over Lake Erie.  The light domes are from city lights and although they create a sharp and interesting contrast to the night sky, they also act as a thief of stars, the stray light we create washes out the stars above and rob us of the beauty of night.

Let the Games Begin
Here is a collection of some of my favorite goalie quotes to go along with a photo of my son.

“Goaltender is a normal job. Sure ! How would you like it if at your job, every time you made the slightest mistake a little red light went on over your head and 18,000 people stood up and screamed at you?” -Jacques Plante

“The day they put me in net I had a good game. I’ve stayed there ever since.” – Terry Sawchuk

“The pressure is unreal. Most of the goalkeepers they feel the pressure. The only ones that don’t worry are the ones too dumb to know what’s happening to them.” – Tony Esposito

“The goalie is like the guy on the minefield. He discovers the mines and destroys them. If you make a mistake, somebody gets blown up.” – Arturs Irbe

I cropped this one to 16:9 (using it as wallpaper at work)
That is the moon rising between the trees for anyone wondering.

Summer Falls
One night, +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn, +JW Vraets and myself made the slippery decent into the ravine to shoot these wonderful falls in Grimsby, Ontario.

The unfortunate part of the experience is that the skies were totally overcast as we shot the falls.  After we slipped and slid out of the ravine Murphy's Law once again proved out Murphy's theory and the skies promised to clear.  So, we drove to another location and shot there as the skies in fact did clear.

This image is two separate images shot on the same night at locations separated by about 5 km or so and by about 1 hour of the clock..  The sky was blended into the foreground scene in photoshop and the final image is what I'm sure we all envisioned when we made the slippery decent to the base of the falls.

This intense looking chap is none other than my oldest.  They lost the final game in the regional playdowns this weekend.  
Provincials next, lets hope for some better luck.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting with +JW Vraets and +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn, the images captured while with them will show up in my stream later.  For now is an image that I actually didn't plan on capturing, but am very glad I did.
This image is a 4 shot vertical panorama. A patchy fog was rolling in as I was driving home from a night of shooting the milky way. As I drove into town I noticed that the moon looked particularly good this evening with the low fog, so I detoured to a rail path nearby. This panoramic stitch is the result. I personally love the details in the foreground while the lights from the small town are washed out in the fog.

After tons of thinking and re-thinking I decided to pick up a used copy of the famous Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM.

With that purchase I had to deploy one of my very costly models (better known as a son) and took some practice shots with him on his scooter.  I've gotta say it is by far the sweetest lens I've owned and the bokeh is simply divine.  Having such a handsome model doesn't hurt either

A quick handheld image with the new (old lens, but new to me) 70-200 f/2.8

I think I'm going to be liking this setup
Oh, and yes this is cropped
On another side note.... this shot was also a test of the auto focus system on the 6d,  I'm not sure what you think, but I think it's passed the test.

Guess what I'm wearing today?!?!

Hup Holland Hup
Laat de leeuw niet in zijn hempie staan
Hup Holland Hup
Trek het beesie geen pantoffels aan
Hup Holland Hup
Laat je uit 't veld niet slaan
Want de leeuw op voetbalschoenen
Durft de hele wereld aan

Well at least I do

Percussion Tubes
Quite possibly one of my favorite night images I've taken to date.
Most definitely my favourite taken with the 6d 

The urban glow from across Lake Erie, the subtle colours and reflection in the water, and the almost minimalist transition from the water below to the heavens above, the percussion tubes (not really) and the milky way converge at the same end point.  Everything seemed to work for this image... including the high ISO performance of the camera.

As many of you already know, I am very upfront about my techniques for shooting and processing the night sky.

In the past I have posted unprocessed photos to illustrate what you can expect when you take an entry level dslr and a kit lens out to shoot the night sky.  I myself have moved up to a full frame camera as of late and have been very surprised and pleased at the results with high iso performance coupled with a fast lens.

On a recent image a G+er commented that he’d never seen both the landscape and stars at the same time, and called the image “digital fakery” which struck a nerve with me.  I am opposed to those who shoot multiple images create composite images and try to pass it off as a brilliant single capture.  It’s that behaviour that brings about the comments like the one I received.

I thought that it might help out those community members who do not photograph the night sky to show them an image SOOC (RAW converted to jpg) next to the same image after post processing.

The image you see on the left is the one that is right out of the camera, the one on the right is after post.  I have obviously removed the ugly signage that was in the water (3 of them) and I enhanced both the milky way, and a meteor streak.  I have also adjusted the sky and landscape both with vibrancy, and your typical levels, curves, shadow, and highlight adjustments.  Throw in some noise removal and you have the finished product that you see on the right..

Feel free to share or +mention anyone who you think this may help out.  I am also always open and willing to answer any specific questions you may have.___

Happy Independence Day to my friends (both those I've met and those I've yet to meet) south of the 49th.

Have a great holiday and snap lots of cool fireworks photos!!!

This image has nothing to do with the 4th of July, unless of course you count the very dim meteor streak captured in the core of the milky way as celestial fireworks.

At least I shot in RAW this time......

The learning curve of a new setup and totally different brand can be hard enough when it's light out....  Doing it in the dark adds to the difficulties.  I'm rather pleased with my efforts to learn the camera so far.  I'm far from what I'd call a master of the Canon, but I can operate it in the dark pretty well now. ....  and as the title says....

Specs are as follows 
Weapon - Canon 6d
Glass - Samyang 14mm f/2.8
ISO - Pushing it at 12800
Exposure - 25s
Processing in both LR and PS

Question to all the Canon-ites out there.

Who is using Magic Lantern with the 6d?
What are your experiences with it?

And, I can't seem to find the latest build... anyone with a link?
